Great Spaghetti & Meat Balls

Yes they have great pizza, but they hooked me on their spaghetti and meat balls. They tell me they're made fresh daily. When I'm hungry, I get the urge to have their Spaghetti and Meat Balls. Don't know why, but there you have it.

The restaurant was small and clean. You could say it is unassuming. But, that is where the humble stops and the wow begins. We stopped in for lunch and chose the fresh tomato, basil, garlic, mozzarella, and olive oil pizza. The flavors of these toppings were perfectly balanced atop the thin crusted pizza. I don't have words to describe how... More

We were looking for a pizza place close to our condos near Branson and found this place on an Internet search. We ordered it and drove to pick it up. Was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It was ready in 20 min from our call. Got the Supreme and really enjoyed it. May have been a tad more... More

Go to Pizza By the Chef - ONLY the Hollister location - a couple of times a month! We are new to the area and this is THE BEST PIZZA anywhere. Love the Bacon Cheeseburger pizza - it is the best! Bonnie is always friendly and is a great waitress too.

Although it is a rather limited menu, pizza, salad, sandwiches and a couple of pasta entrees, the pizza choices were amazing! We had the meat lovers and it was delicious. A side Caesar Salad was ordered and it was not your typical Caesar, there was grated parm on it which was pretty lackluster. Stick with the pizza. A medium left... More

We like the pizza, but have stopped eating there because of the bad service and unfriendly staff. The food is way better than the service you will receive.

This place was reccommended to us. It was out of the way from where we were staying. Waitress was not super friendly, and when we stated issues with our pizza was defensive. Upon bringing my 1st piece of pizza to my lips, the 1st thing I was presented with was a burnt arouma/flavor entering my mouth as I breathed in... More
